measure requiring all voters to show photo i.d. in order to vote. a measure that opponents of that law say would suppress the vote, particularly among minority, elderly and young voters. joining me now, msnbc's joy reed. joy, michael steele said, look, you can't say this on monday and pass these kinds of things. this is part of what's alienating those voters. >> absolutely. apparently, the governor's and legislatures out there in the world didn't get the memo from nice reince priebus. the problem with these laws, lawrence, they are far more likely to disenfranchise black and hispanic youth, something like 72% of african-americans who go to vote are asked for i.d. something like 760% of hispanics, but half of white younger people who go to vote. so you're disenfranchising people directly and black and hispanic youth are far more likely to report not voting because either they don't have the i.d. or are perceived or think they don't have the i.d. so on one hand, we're going to speak more >>> good evening. welcome to the ed show. i'm michael eric dyson in for ed. tonight, john boehner backs o

to enforce the law. >> you know the deal, boehner's office back tracked the next day issuing the clarification that speaker misspoke. the death toll from gun violence continues to climb in america. today there was news after u.s. marine shooting, killing two colleagues then killing himself in kwau in quantico, virginia. he had ties to white supremacist group in colorado prisons. then the story of 13-year-old antonio santiago. antonio was asleep with his mother when two teenagers approached them, demanding money. antonio's mother told the teens she had no money. when the teens threatened her, she begged them to spare her baby's life. the teens shot her twice, and then shot antonio in the head, killing him. >> he said, i'm going to kill you if you don't give me your money and i said, i'm sorry, i don't have any. he shoved me and then he -- then he shot my baby right in the head. >> get your cell phones out. i want to know what you think. tonight equestion, will congress listen to the country's overwhelming support for background checks? text a for yes. text b no no. or go to ou
